    The unnecessary nastiness, even sadism, of much of the violence also bears mentioning if you're expecting more of the benignly cartoonish silliness of Cube's lone directing effort, "The Players Club."

    A sketchy, half-baked, stylistically inconsistent movie that scarcely even pretends to care whether it makes sense or not.

    Proof positive that heavy underground buzz doesn't necessarily imply merit or even intrinsic interest.

    What is love? Haddaway asks in the omnipresent soundtrack song. Not this time-wasting bilge, that's for sure.

    This is one that, like a 1am rerun of a late-season Cavs-Grizzlies matchup, deserves to play out in darkness and obscurity.

    Mainly offers fodder for tweens who fantasize about glamorous Los Angeles lifestyles where everyone is skinny, rich, and on Prozac. It's a film where gays and minorities not only fit into stereotypes, but embrace them.

    Now I realize my confessed appreciation for Kids will thoroughly bugger my credibility in describing Gummo with phrases like “appalling,” “gratuitously cruel,” and “exploitative,” but the unmitigated repulsiveness of this film pretty much rules out all subtler options.
